15th June - On June 6th, I saw an adult LBBG with a black darvic and yellow G:K on its right leg.  It turns out that this is a regular bird at Little Marlow.  Having received details back from Peter Rock in Bristol, it transpires that this bird was ringed as a juvenile female in Bath on 29th June 2006.  It has been seen annually on many dates up to 2010 at Costa da Caparica, Portugal and at LMGP on:
  • 22nd August 2009
  • 24th August 2010
  • 31st July 2011
Being seen in early June this year, it is very likely a local breeder - maybe Cressex?  I also saw it again today.
